So much for spring! It seems the whole country is shivering from the unseasonal cold weather we’re experiencing, despite the fact that we’re almost into April.
And while the good news is it won’t last forever, the bad news is that thanks to climate change, we’ll have to get used to more of the same in the years ahead.
The government’s chief scientific adviser, Sir John Beddington, has warned that as a result of past global emissions, we’re going to see “significant” climate change over the next 20 to 25 years.
Put simply, that means greater extremes in our weather.
In an interview with the BBC, he explains “…temperatures are increasing but the thing that is going to happen is that we are going to see much more variability in our weather. I think you only have to look at the last few years to see how that is actually starting to manifest itself even in the UK.”
The answer to reversing this trend is to take action, and quickly. This is something we at Anglian Windows strongly believe, and that’s why we threw our support behind the recent Climate Week – Britain’s biggest climate change campaign, inspiring a new wave of action to create a sustainable future.
During Climate Week, half a million people attended over 3,400 events to discover ways that they can play their part in combatting climate change in the future. Every small action helps, and if you want to get involved at home you’ll find some great advice on the Climate Week site.
One way to prepare yourself for the worst that the British weather can throw at you is to protect your home with double glazing from Anglian Windows. Not only will this keep you warm and improve the energy efficiency of your home, but it’s stylish enough for even the most house proud of you.
And because we offer everything from doors and double glazed windows to rooftrim, guttering and conservatories, there are all kinds of ways you can help protect the environment while improving your home.
